Julie: Well... what do you think, Alex?
Alex: I don't think we need homework.
Julie: Why not?

Julie: I understand.
Alex: What do you think, Julie?
Julie: I think that we need homework. It's helpful to practice what we learned in class. Homework helps us remember and understand the information.
Alex: I guess that's true. It good to review what you learned.
Julie: Exactly. Then, you can do better on tests. However, you shouldn't study too hard.
Alex: Right. Taking breaks is also important.
